It's doesn't have to be a holiday to celebrate with fireworks, especially if you print out out this fireworks coloring page!
Sure, you can save the coloring page for Independence Day picnics or New Year's Eve parties, but ordinary days deserve celebrations, too.
This free, printable fireworks coloring sheet features brilliant pyrotechnics, exploding firecrackers and sparklers illuminating a city skyline at night. Below the skyline, a parade of transportation drives by the river where boats float, filled with fireworks, ready to add to the festivities.

The fireworks illustration is from A City Is, a collection of free verse poems by the late Norman Rosten (Brooklyn’s First Poet Laureate) and illustrated by Melanie. Published in 2004, it is currently out of print, but I highly recommend checking out a copy from your local library!
